Five Trending Paint Colors to Try This Fall

Just as leaves begin to turn and pumpkin-spice everything hits the shelves, you’ll find the fall season to be the *perf* opportunity for a decor refresh — and it starts with the walls. If you’re considering giving your home a fresh coat of paint but are waiting for the latest trends, here are the five shades that promise to be très trendy during the cooler months. And nope, there isn’t a shade of red or orange to be found. Fall 2016 is all about rich blues, jewel-toned greens and muted grays and neutrals. Treat those en voguemoody hues as a neutral and pair them with natural textures and vibrant accents for a stunning space to cozy up in this fall.

1. Metallic Tiled Backsplash: While this shade might not immediately spring to mind when leaves are turning red and orange, a rich shade of green is actually one of the most versatile, timeless and invigorating colors. Skip the paint and take a tiled backsplash higher than normal for an extra bit of drama and texture. (via The Bungalow)

2. Bedroom Accent Wall: Most people would shy away from green in the bedroom, but when paired with geometric shapes and dusty pink pillows, this rich sage green is seriously luxe. Play up the color with dramatic statement pieces, like a velvet headboard and natural wood and rattan textures. (via Lisanne van de Klift)

3. Accent Wall: Make a statement with a deep forest green accent wall, paired with natural wood and modern white pieces for a fresh new look. Exotic and unexpected, a dark green color in the living room is a great way to balance out opposing decor tastes. (via Bolig Magasinet)

4. Nightstand Accent: Two shades are better than one. Here, a nightstand plays well with a matching shade on the wall and on the bed. This vibrant color is versatile enough to work with any bedroom style, whether you love modern minimalist or all-out glam. (via Mad & Bolig)


5. Abstract Art: Rose quartz — one of Pantone’s Colors of the Year for 2016 — has been trending on Pinterest all year, and for good reason: It looks chic on anything, from a statement piece of art to a cozy duvet cover. Take a cue from fall’s changing colors and incorporate more dusty pinks into your bedroom with a new duvet or piece of art. (via Michael Bond Art)

6. Half Pink: Not sure how to feel about all-pink-everything? Try painting half the wall in a pale pink hue so soft and subtle, it’s basically a neutral. You can add more pink tones to your Pantone-pretty living room with throw pillows for an on-trend update that takes seconds. (via Clive Tompsett)

7. Rosy Linens: Take the pink into the bedroom and swap your current duvet for a simple dusty pink linen one. It will add a soft feel to the room and is neutral enough to open up your throw pillow possibilities. (via Elle)

8. Pink Kitchen Backsplash: Give your kitchen a chic update with a rose pink tile backsplash. All-white cabinets and gold hardware? It doesn’t get more on point than that. (via Historias de Casa)


9. Royal Dining: A dark royal blue brings a sense of luxury and sophistication to any room. A bold color like this one is great as an accent wall and adds the perfect pop to a mostly neutral dining room. (via Inside Out)

10. Open Shelving Glam: Traditionally, blue is seen as a cold color, but if you pick a blue with warm undertones, you’ll gave the same earthy vibes as a rich green or brown. Show off your perfectly styled kitchen shelves with a painted backsplash. (via Jonas Ingerstedt)

11. Woke Up Like This: A dark blue accent wall will have you feeling like you’re lounging in a bedroom pulled straight out of Architectural Digest. Just don’t forget to add lots of boho textures, like a feathered juju hat or a rattan headboard for a finished look. (via Ave Styles)

12. Shades of Blue: Sometimes your best Netflix and lounge room needs a little sophistication too. If you’re completely head over heels in love with the deep blue trend, layer accents like chairs or artwork in darker shades to give a space depth. (via West Elm)


13. Light Gray: If you’re ready to give your room a fresh coat of paint but are cautious about choosing a hue that will clash with your Christmas tree, a cozy neutral shade just might be perfect for you. Neutrals look lovely with textures, like rustic wood, linen or velvets. (via Oh My Dear)

14. Scandi Chic: Reinvent summer’s fresh pastels with a warmer neutral. Play with tried and true pairings, like soft grays with peachy blush tones and gold accessories, for a fresh Scandinavian vibe. (via Avenue Lifestyle)

15. Cozy Living Room: Create a cozy space for entertaining with a plush neutral rug and gray sofa. Be sure to position it right next to a white ottoman and a white bookcase full of your favorite paperbacks, for the ultimate relaxation station. (via Lovely Life)

16. Textures Galore: This bedroom totally pulls off the all-white look without looking cold, thanks to plenty of light gray elements. When it comes to comfort colors, soft gray is the king of cozy. (via Norske Interiorblogger)


17. Cozy Bedroom: Shades of gray have been trending hard all year, and a dark tone is perfect for a bedroom in need of a wintery makeover. Accentuate the richness of the color with luxe details, like a velvet headboard, tasseled blankets and feathered artwork. (via Paige Morse Creative)

18. Rustic Gray: Rustic, Scandi or boho: Whatever your aesthetic is, dark gray is the color for you. Choose a rich charcoal shade that feels luxurious, and accent with warm wood tones for the ultimate cabin vibe. (via Domino)

19. Almost Black: It takes a lot of courage to paint your living room a dark color like (*gasp*) black, but all you need is one accent wall (or a corner) to really make a statement. Avoid a cave scenario by incorporating a colorful sofa, patterned rug and lots of plants. (via Aunt Peaches)

20. Gray and Pink: That dark shade of gray totally works in this kitchen, thanks to the matte factor of the tile backsplash. And you can’t go wrong with a contrasting pink cabinet. This space is winning in so many ways. (via Allie NYC)

Picking a paint color feels like a major commitment and, in my experience, never goes perfectly on the first try. The simple fact that paint samples look entirely different under the direct fluorescent lighting in the home improvement store is enough to drive a person mad. And even if you take that paint swatch home, there’s plenty of room for error.

Bathrooms can be notoriously tricky when it comes to landing on a winning paint color. Their inconsistent lighting, fixtures, and relation to other spaces in your home can send you into a tizzy. Here are a few ways to make the process easier, as well as some recommendations for bathroom paint colors to make your space feel like you (and go perfectly with your bedroom paint colors).

​Considerations When Picking A Bathroom Paint Color

Image via Grace Kelly/Unsplash

Every bathroom is different, not only when it comes to the square footage, but the layout, natural lighting, flooring, and location in your home. Keep these criteria in mind when heading to the paint store:


A small powder room for guests will be treated much differently from your primary bathroom suite. The size of the space inevitably affects how the color is perceived. Let’s debunk one common myth, though: dark colors and small spaces can coexist. Statement small bathrooms can actually feel larger when properly painted. In fact, bold bathrooms are trending because what’s more fun than a surprisingly half bath? The answer is nothing.


Does your bathroom have windows, or are you reliant on overhead lighting? Natural light from a window will make colors more vibrant and saturated, while ambient lighting can often dull colors. It’s something to keep in mind when falling for colors that are bold and moody. A combination of ambient light and natural light is your best bet for achieving a true-to-swatch color match, however, since this isn’t always the simplest of fixes, pick colors that will do well in your existing lighting.


If you're planning a major renovation, you’ll want to consider the material and color of your bathroom’s flooring. Notice its shape, size, undertones, and textures. Hardwood will often bring a warmth to the space, while stark tile can feel a bit more modern. Consider how this will factor into the presentation of your chosen paint color. And if your bathroom features character tile in a bold color, lean into it with a paint color that will make it the star of the show, rather than an out-of-place accessory.

I’m sharing a handful of bathroom colors that will push you out of your comfort zone, as well as a few tried and true solutions. Whatever your fancy, there’s a color on this list for every bathroom — big or small, bold or neutral, maximal or minimal.

​For The Neutral Lovers

Image via Bence Balla-Schottner/Unsplash

Relish in your “sad beige era” with cool or warm neutrals — and be proud of your eye for simply beauty. These colors challenge the traditional stark white, but remain classic and timeless. For a bathroom with bold tile, uniquely-shaped flooring, or little-to-no lighting, a soothing neutral color can do wonders. Try one of these:

Benjamin Moore Pale Oak

I’m a sucker for all of Benjamin Moore’s Historical Collection colors. There’s something so cozy and comforting about them, and Pale Oak is no exception. Their website describes this versatile neutral as a “quiet” and “warm” off-white with gray undertones.

Sherwin Williams Windchill

This rustic gray is a beautiful option for bathrooms that experience a wide range of lighting. Perhaps it has an east-facing window, and basks in the sunlight in the morning, but stays dark most of the afternoon. This refined greige is modern yet homey — a complement to silver or gold fixtures, as well as cool or warm color palettes.

Behr Creamy Mushroom

The name says it all. This luxurious tan color is delicious and calming. The earthy tones scream “warmth” and yet offer enough sophistication to make a bathroom pop. Behr’s website says this color “relaxes and invites you to cast off the day by sinking into coziness.”

Benjamin Moore Alabaster

If you’ve been searching for a white or off-white color, you’ve undoubtedly stumbled upon Alabaster. It’s one of Benjamin Moore’s most popular colors of all time, and for good reason. The traditional white color is clean, classic, and the ideal backdrop for both bold and neutral decor. With pink undertones, the white will read warmer than other popular white paints without adding too much of a flare.

​For the Moody Vibes

If you’re like me and see bathrooms as permission slips to go a bit wild, you’re in the right place. There's something just so beautiful about a bold, over-the-top bathroom. Perhaps you’re looking to paint the walls and ceiling for a dramatic monochromatic look, or maybe pairing your color choice with an equally-as-daring wallpaper. Try one of these colors:

Clare Dirty Chai

Like the drink itself, this color is like a long, soothing, embrace. Clare says “Dirty Chai is the perfect brown paint color. Warm sugar and spice with a shot of espresso. This cinnamon-y light brown makes an excellent pick-me-up.” Pair it with organic touches like plants, stone tile, or vibrant earth tones (or anything from Anthropologie's fall decor).

Benjamin Moore Charcoal Slate

When I hear “dark and moody,” this color comes to mind. The not-quite black color is rich with indigo undertones, yet allows light to bounce around the space. Warm it up with antique accents in gold, or keep it cool and modern with black and white accents.

Clare Field Trip

Scroll for a second or two on social media and you’ll surely see a green interior space. Homeowners and renters alike are fawning over the transformational power of a good green paint color. This one is more adventurous than most and feels like it was taken directly from the jungle. According to Claire, it's a “deep, forest green hue that captures the natural beauty and intrigue of an outdoor escape.”

Behr New Navy Blue

Navy scares paint newbies because of its undeniable nautical vibes, but I’m here to defend this gorgeous color. Whether you’re setting sail or just looking for a deep color to submerge yourself in, this “new” navy blue is it. More like the depth of the sea, this blue is almost black in some lighting and yet never loses its inviting and restorative nature — a win-win for a relaxing bathroom.

​For A Pop of Color

Looking to surprise your guests with a unique vibe you might be too nervous to use elsewhere? Try a bright color in your bathroom. These colors are beautiful when off-set with white tile or wall molding that breaks up the space. For smaller spaces, you can go all in on this color, delivering a contemporary look with just paint. Try one of these pops of color:

Lick Green 08

Mint green is a vintage favorite making an epic comeback. This green paint has warm yellow and blue undertones that make it fresh and rejuvenating. Go retro with black and white tiles and this delicious ice cream color, or take a modern turn and pair it with dark wood tones. Lick says “this mid green is perfect for spaces where you want to feel open-minded and energized.”

Benjamin Moore Fancy Pants

There is something so fun and inspiring about this periwinkle purple color. The color insists you never take yourself too seriously when getting ready in the morning. It’s a “fun and uplifting” bluish purple hue that doesn’t feel too youthful. In fact, when styled with classic neutrals, this color could read upscale, as its name suggests, or whimsical with the right patterns and accessories. Take your pick.

Benjamin Moore Vermillion

If you want your guests to enter your bathroom mouth agape, look no further than this wild Vermillion color. It’s “inspired by ancient pigments” and yet conveys a confidence that’s hard to deny. The vibrant red-orange is nothing short of alluring, dramatic, and playful. A small bathroom painted in this color is likely to become your favorite room in the house.

Valspar Everglade Deck

Bathrooms are often a place for serenity, calmness, and revitalization. This midnight blue, while still bold and unexpected, strikes a balance between showy and elegant. The color melts on any wall, with or without a ton of light to create a modern, soothing space you’ll never want to leave.

​For Following Trends:

While paint may feel like a super permanent decision, it’s really not. It’s so easy and affordable to swap colors and find something new. That’s why trending paint colors are something I never shy away from. It’s ok if you might not love it in 10 years, you’ll love it now and that’s enough. If you’re looking to wow guests with your on-trend design sensibilities, try one of these trending paint colors for your bath:

Benjamin Moore Raspberry Blush

Bold coral colors are trending for 2023 — in fact, this is Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year. Following Pantone’s lead (they picked Viva Magneta as their annual favorite), this electric pink is a statement on its own. It pairs well with neutrals with any undertone: pink, yellow, gray, and brown.

Sherwin Williams Glamour

Mauve is in and this muted version is elegance embodied. I think this color has taken so many people by surprise because it’s pink…without being overtly feminine. This color features brown undertones that feel upscale and luxurious, unlike so many pinks. Its depth and ability to both make an impact and somehow act as a neutral makes this a top contender in 2023. If you love neutral vibes, but want to try something a little wilder, this is your color.

Clare Cosmic Vibes

Like Glamour, this trending purple is calming yet vivacious. Depending on how it’s styled, it can be the subtle nod of color in a neutral landscape or the eye-catching centerpiece of a maximalist fever dream. This mysterious color feels like a rainy spring day. Clare says it’s “straight out of the Milky Way.”

Benjamin Moore Savannah Green

In fashion and design, chartreuse is having its moment. This Savannah Green color captures the playful nature of that trend without the overzealous commitment to such a bright color. With green and yellow undertones, this gold hue feels like it would appear in a quirky Brooklyn loft or the Instagrammable bathroom of your favorite bar.

​For A Calming, Earthy Oasis:

Bathrooms are often the places we begin and end our days, and it’s no secret that color, design, and overall vibes can affect our minds and bodies. Earth-tones are always a popular bathroom choice and for good reason. They ground us, sooth us, and offer inspiration for the day ahead. Root yourself in nature with one of these colors for your bathroom:

Behr Half Sea Fog

This “quiet blue-gray” is the quintessential bathroom color, regardless of style. Mimicking the mystery of the sea with the vastness of the sky, this coastal blue is soft, steady, and serene. It’s subtle enough to support bold accessories and distinct enough to build your entire bathroom around. When you think of a “calming blue,” this is it.

Behr Conifer Green

There is something so homey about a dark green. This one features subtle blue undertones that compliment “both traditional and contemporary decor.” The brilliant depth pairs well with all colors of wood tones, to create a bold yet familiar pairing. This is the type of color that doesn’t require a whole lot of accessorizing. It’s a headliner without any extra frills.

Benjamin Moore Autumn Bronze

This year seems to be the comeback of brown. What has been seen as dull or dirty is having a reprise as a luxurious choice. What makes this bronze even more special is the “touch of golden olive” that warms it up and makes it so relaxing. It’s begging for a monochromatic styling of tans and light browns to really make the gold hues pop.

Benjamin Moore Potters Clay

When searching for a comforting Earth tone, blues and greens are among the top picks, but clay is an often forgotten, yet formidable, opponent to tradition. This terracotta orange is “sunbaked and radiant,” adding exponential warmth to any space it covers. The desert vibes are elite when paired with textured linens and bright neutrals.

My best advice for picking a bathroom paint color is simple: get it on the wall. Even if you have to take 10 samples home and paint swatches all around your bathroom, do it. There’s just no substitute for seeing it in your space, in your lighting, on the texture of your walls.

Whether your bathroom is a retreat away from the hustle and bustle or a showroom for your style, paint is the easiest and most potent way to transform a room. And don’t forget: it’s just paint. It’s easy to change. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Tag us with your bathroom paint colors on Instagram!

While holiday enthusiasts are breaking out their Christmas trees and stockings, some of us are getting into the spirit a little differently. As a member of the tribe, December is high time for latkes and dreidels. And while our celebrations are truly lit (it’s the Festival of Lights, after all!) the merch selection has never quite had the same allure as the magic of Christmas.

The eight nights of Hanukkah begin on December 7th this year, and we’re on a mission to elevate the classic blue and silver while helping you answer the most challenging question of our time, “So, what should I buy for my Jewish friends, anyway?” Whether you're looking to ditch the kitsch or fully lean into the uniqueness being one of the Chosen people, here are 24 items that should be on your list.

Rare, the 2020 album from singer, Only Murders in the Building actress, and entrepreneur Selena Gomez, is one of my go-to pump up albums. From singleness to confidence to heartbreak, she touches on so many aspects of being a woman. Every time I play it, I always end up in a better mood than I was before.

If you've been consuming Rare Beauty like there's no tomorrow and listened to "My Mind and Me" on repeat since it dropped, then you've probably also been awaiting any news on Selena Gomez' new music. Well, today is our lucky day: a third studio album is coming!

Is Selena Gomez recording a new album?

Yes! Selena confirmed on her Instagram that she is making new music. And on December 7, she seemingly confirmed that the album will release February 2024. We can't wait!

Selena Gomez' New Music

Selena has been in Paris filming Emilia Perez alongside Zoe Saldaña and Karla Sofia Gascón, but confirmed this week on her socials that she is also recording new music. In a post that features her sitting in a recording booth, she says "don't worry guys, it's coming. Even from Paris. 😉"

In addition to her Revelación EP, and features on Rema's "Calm Down" and Coldplay's "Let Somebody Go," Selena gave us another track in 2022: "My Mind & Me." The track was released alongside her Apple TV+ documentary of the same name, and is a much slower and ultra-vulnerable look into her mental health.

“I felt super connected to what I was singing and what I was saying,” she told Variety in December of 2022. “Honestly, it was therapeutic for me.”

“Once we had the overarching concept of feeling at odds with your own mind, the song just kind of wrote itself," said Amy Allen, who served as a collaborator on the song. "It felt like a dream session because it’s so rare for a song to come out so naturally.”

Like so many forms of art, songwriting has given Selena a way to process her emotions and figure out how she truly feels about a situation: “In a way, it saved me from having to talk again about all this stuff that I was feeling...I think being honest and coming from that place turns out always the best music.”

What is Selena Gomez' next single?

On August 17, Selena Gomez announced on Instagram that, she's giving us a new song! "Y’all have been asking for new music for a while. Since I’m not quite done with SG3, I wanted to put out a fun little song I wrote a while back that’s perfect for the end of summer," the singer says in the caption. Aside from being excited about her new single, some fans are speculating the polaroids in the announcement Instagram post could be a hint at a 1989 (Taylor's Version) feature 👀.

If you've been waiting to stream "Single Soon," the wait is now over! It's available on all streaming platforms - plus you can preorder the vinyl that'll ship September 29, 2023!

Fans began speculating that the song could be about Selena's ex The Weeknd, but on August 27, she debunked that theory when she commented on Hollywood Life's Instagram postabout the theory. "Couldn’t be more false," she says in the comment.

In addition to releasing the song, you can watch the official music video for "Single Soon" below.

Selena Gomez - Single Soon (Official Music Video)

Decked in a dazzling outfit that's perfect for girls night, Selena makes breaking up look and sound like the perfect way to end a summer romance that's fizzled.

Singing "I know he'll be a mess when I break the news. But I'll be single soon," over a pulsating beat, Selena just created a celebratory breakup song that I'll have on repeat.

What's on Selena Gomez' third album?

We don't have an official track list yet but according to @ThePopTingz on Twitter, Selena Gomez' new music will reportedly sound similar to Good Girl Gone Bad by Rihanna. Considering Selena is such a big fan (so big of a fan, apparently, that itgets in the way of her love life), it makes sense that Rihanna might influence her music!

Selena's new album reportedly sounds “modern and with more dance and EDM influence.” She also confirmed sad melodies will be nonexistent on this album. During her interview with Tony Fly and Symon on SiriusXM Hits 1 LA With Tony Fly and Symon, she said, "... It just doesn't match where I am anymore, and I live in sad-girl music world."

What is Selena Gomez working on now?

Selena just wrapped filming on Only Murders in the Building season three, and is currently filming Emilia Perez in Paris. The upcoming album will be Selena's third studio album.

When did Selena Gomez release a single prior to "Single Soon?" 

Selena Gomez released "My Mind & Me" on November 3, 2022, alongside her Apple TV+ documentary of the same name.
